I don't do glow, but I feel there's a clear line at about 30cc where electric makes more sense. It seems to me the smaller the engine, the bigger the problems. My DLE120 always starts right up, while...

Yeah, I miss the sound of a 36cc gasser, but the weight distribution is so much better, as is the punch out of hovers. I just got sick and tired of all the drama with a small gas engine.

*DUH* That question would have been easy to answer had I read the specs. Output current drops drastically with higher input voltage, so I'll feed it 16.8V.

I'm converting one of my 30cc gassers to electric and I think I'm going to go with a single powersource setup on this one. I normally go with a separate TX battery, but I...

This happened a few months ago, but I've just about gotten over it. How to fit a 104" wing span 120cc plane in a single garbage bag. (Radio lockout, possibly due to bad power distribution unit.)
